More springtime spirit comes to Fire Emblem Heroes' Familial Festivities | Nintendo Wire

The very first Fire Emblem Heroes seasonal banner was for springtime and Easter themed fun back in 2017, and in its fourth go around it’s turning mostly to Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. Not exclusively though, as a certain sister rounds out a trio three years in the making.

 

 
The youngest Whitewing, Est, joins previous bunny-themed siblings Catria and Palla. This time she’s forgone the lance and instead takes up a blue tome, but still flies high on her pegasus. Looking to the Binding Blade now, we get Fir as a flying axe wielder — but you wouldn’t know that just looking at her carrot. Keeping the flier theme going is a rabbit themed take on arrogant adversary Narcian, though he’s traded his own axe for a lance.

Not everyone is airborne this time around though, as our new duo have their feet firmly on the ground. Idunn and Fae are coming together as a sturdy red, armored dragon with plenty going on with their unique breath weapon. Their duo skill looks to supplement armored dragons (did they really need more help?), removing vulnerabilities those characteristics face (such as from armor effective weapons or Falchion) and buffing their defenses even further.

These new, limited-time heroes should be available in-game as of the rollover to May 18th. In the near future they’ll be joined by Fir’s father Bartre, whose bulging muscles will be squeezed into a bunny outfit all his own and will be a free unit in an upcoming Tempest Trials+.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
